Reception Music Ateliers

“Early music education is an effective means of the development of the mental and intellectual sphere.” – University of Central Florida, Debby Mitchell RECEPTION MUSIC ATELIER gives children the possibility to develop their musical and motor skills in a natural and entertaining way. This course differs from the Nursery Music Ateliers with a wider scope of study, more challenging assignments and, most importantly, it includes the study of music theory. Children play various musical games, try to perform musical stories, play Orff instruments and get acquainted with the main music instruments. Children also cooperate in a more coordinated way within a group, they learn about different ways of perception from one another, and hence develop their social intelligence. Ateliers are taught by specially trained teachers in a friendly and lively atmosphere.
